-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practical decisions and give emergency briefings and address the anxiety of their constituents. governor chris christ

hurricane sandy. a new jersey election officials announced voters displaced by the storm will be able to vote via e-mail or fax. right now, joining me today, josh barrel, columnist for view. joy reed, managing editor of our sister website, the grio.com. my boss where she is editor and publisher and rob herbert. it's great to have you all back at the table. well, in case you haven't noticed, we are two days away from the election. polls suggest the president is holding a small, but significant lead in key states. a poll has president obama up five points in that state and two new nbc news polls have the president leading by six points in ohio and two in florida. the polls in these key states relatively stable over the last few weeks. it seems there's little persuading left to do. both sides agree on what is going to decide the campaign. that's turnout. they touted his party's get out to vote. >> we are far ahead of where we were in 2008. we are going to be -- you know, our ground game is better than their ground game. we are going to do more voter contacts this year than all of 2008 an

of sandy and the death and destruction issue impossible to maintain. since then andrew cuomo has talked about climate change and so has president obama both when he was asked about it on his news conference and in his victory night victory speech. >> we want our children to live in america that isn't burdened by debt, that isn't weakened by inequality, that isn't threatened by the destructive power of the warming planet. >> what specifically do you plan to do in a second term to tackle the issue of climate change and do you think the political will exists in washington to pass legislation that could include some kind of attacks on carbon? >> i am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions. and as a consequence i think we've got an obligation to future generations to do something about it. >> we must rethink and redesign for the long-term because extreme weather, as we have learned, is the new normal. >> and at this week's settlement with bp of wasn't a reminder enough of the hazards of pursuing fossil fuels, there are new pic

's administration has estimated the cost of the damage caused by hurricane sandy to the state will be nearly $30 billion. and protests continued in tahrir square this morning, granting himself sweeping new powers, we'll have more on continuing tensions in egypt tomorrow. right now, i'm joined by author of "life inc.," how we can take it back. author of "plutocrats," peter suterman, and co-owner of green light bookstore an independent bookstore in brooklyn. thanksgiving is a day set aside to celebrate family, community, your neighbors, a day to give thanksme thanks. only a few hours after this year came black friday. a different type of holiday. a time to celebrate american consumpti consumption. a time to elbow your neighbor in the eye socket for a steeply discounted flat screen tv. tens of millions shopped throughout america. but black friday has become more of a cultural symbol than an economic one. a beloved media story about the great lengths americans are willing to go to to get a deal. and there's no store that captures the essence of american consumerism in its costs more than walmart. wa

hard by hurricane sandy. for me, everything changed on october 29th. this is where governorment compassion matters. fema matters to the people of the eighth congressional district. creating, providing humanitarian relief. largely driven by government at all levels and certainly the federal government has been important and will continue to be important. >> one of the issues we have seen before, this is a process issue. if you indulge me, the way the filibuster mutated over the years. there's a push for filibuster reform. basically, you get a one day window to do anything with the filibuster where the rules are passed for the new term of congress. there's been more rumblings about filibuster reform. i'm curious where you are on this issue. is it something you want to see prioritized and pushed for or something you can take relief? >> i'm not a leader like the senator of new mexico. senators that weren't so certain have watched what's happened and they see a dysfunctional senate where there's what, one filibuster when lyndon johnson was a majority leader and '50s leading into 1960
